Adrenalectomy is the surgical removal of one or both (bilateral adrenalectomy) adrenal glands. It is usually advised for patients with tumors of the adrenal glands. The procedure can be performed using an open incision or laparoscopic technique.

After surgery

If both adrenals are removed then a lifetime of steroid supplementation of cortisone and hydrocortisone is needed. The dose need to be increased when in stress. [ [ [http://www.surgerydoor.co.uk/medical_conditions/Indices/A/adrenalectomy.htm surgerydoor.co.uk: Adrenalectomy] ]
